The Difference Between Being Busy and Productive

Now I totally get the feeling when you feel like you have been working on your goal non-stop for so long and you aren’t getting anywhere. There isn’t enough time in the day to do even more work, so why isn’t the needle moving? Before we get into this, I want you to know that it is such a common feeling and you shouldn’t feel like you are the only one.

A lot of people glorify being busy but instead of this, we need to work smarter which makes us more productive. So what is the difference?

How To Let Go Of Pain from Past Relationships

We all have those people that we don’t speak to any more and we can hold onto the emotions of the end of that relationship months or even years on.

Now though, I have come a long way to being more at peace with the end of these relationships. Here is how I have moved on.

I know we have all had that feeling when we think to ourselves, “Why didn’t I do this sooner, I would be so much further forward if I had”.

So if we can figure out why it took you so long to get started, then you can see how you can think differently now and actually get started

Sacrifices I Have Had To Make for My Goals

The reason that not everyone can hit their goals is because many people are not willing to make the sacrifices that are needed in order to work towards them. If hitting our goals was easy, we all would have done it by now. The reality is that when you have a big goal in front of you, you are going to have to say no to things. If you take it seriously you have to actively work towards it every day. If you goal is not your number one priority then your time is going to be taken up by something else, not the work you need to do.

How To Be Creative When You Don't Know What to Create

I never thought of myself as a creative person. I always thought of myself as more logical. I was never particularly good at art, nor skilled in any instrument, I was an average writer and I certainly never made anything for someone that would be good enough to sell or even gift. But what I have realised recently is that I am a creative. I do love creating things, so what was it that held me back for so long and made me think that I wasn’t? Maybe it was down to the fact that I didn’t have this clear cut creative outlet that I though you were supposed to have. Any way, here is how to be creative when you don’t know what to create.
